Oh gosh, sorry I can't resist: "There's an App for that." Seriously. There are two Iphone apps, not official ones, mind you, but ones for
"jail-broken" Iphones that could easily accomplish what you and your fiance experienced. I've seen them in action. My husband, being the nerd and
prankster that he is, got both of them. He used the voice synthesizer app to mimic his mother's voice to near perfection. The other app spoofed all
her data on caller ID. He then called our house phone and left a message on our answering machine that sounded exactly like it was left by my mother
in law. He only had to mimic her way of talking and her habit of pausing and the software took care of the rest--mimicking the tone and pitch. The
more distinctive the voice being mimicked, the better the results seem to be. It does not matter if a male is mimicking a female or vice versa from
what I could see.
Since your photo and ringtone are associated with your number on your fiance's Iphone, they will naturally come up when the incoming number is yours,
even if it is spoofed.
I asked my husband for the names of the two programs but he doesn't remember. He took them off his Iphone after playing around with them because it
is questionable whether the program that spoofs phone numbers is legal.
I hope that information helps you get to the bottom of your mystery and that you find the prankster. Look for someone who admits to having a
Here's additional info, look for the stuff under the 2010 paragraph: www.calleridspoofing.info...
They mention something called "Phone Gangster" that has voice changing as one of its features.
I honestly don't know which apps I saw my husband use when he showed me how the message on our recorder was made. Like I said, he took it all of
after playing around with it for a day. One of his friends had pranked him and that's how he learned of the apps and for a couple of days the guys
were going around prank calling each other and some spouses.
